The Remnant and the Catholic Identity Conference Team up in Africa

During the worldwide scandal that is Fiducia Supplicans (FS)– the Vatican’s foray into blessing sodomite couples as part of the disastrous “synodal way” – faithful Catholics were encouraged by the strong reaction that rose up out of Africa against what Robert Cardinal Sarah called the “heresy” of FS. Entire African bishops’ conferences spoke out against FS. Theirs was such a courageously Catholic stand, in fact, that I began to pray for an effective way to publicly demonstrate The Remnant’s solidarity with the African bishops. I’m happy to say that my prayer has been answered.


My old friend and brother-in-arms, Eric Frankovitch (director of the Catholic Identity Conference), and I have decided to team up with the Confraternity of Our Lady of Fatima to help raise money for the Missionaries of the Holy Cross in Tanzania — an authentically Catholic mission, a school (for boys and girls), and center of pre-seminary learning. We have each pledged to raise at least $5000 for the Mission by mid-July, at which time I will travel to Africa to “unite the clans” with our African brothers and sisters in Tanzania.

While there, we will make a pilgrimage climb of Mount Kilimanjaro – the tallest free-standing mountain in the world. Now, I am hardly a mountain climber, so this will be a challenge. However, I believe in the African cause with all my heart, which is why I’m asking you to help me show solidarity with African Catholics. We will also be dedicating this Climb for Christ to the peace plan laid out for the world by Our Lady of Fatima.

If you wish to sponsor me on this important mission, your donation is tax-exempt, and I will pray for each and every sponsor while attempting this challenge. Every penny raised will be used to support the Mission (none of it will be used to pay my travel expenses, which I will be paying out of pocket).  You can complete your donation on the online form HERE or, if you prefer, you can also donate by check. Please earmark it “For the African Mission of the Holy Cross” and send your sponsorship donation to:

The Remnant Foundation
PO Box 1117
Forest Lake, MN 55025

Thank you, and may God bless our joint venture to unite the clans worldwide in the Name of Christ the King. I close with a brief letter of endorsement from His Excellency Bishop Athanasius Schneider:

Bishop Schneider’s Endorsement of The Climb for Christ

Dear Readers of The Remnant:

I would like to recommend to you wholeheartedly the Missionaries of the Holy Cross in Tanzania. I know this religious Community since many years and visit them regularly. It is a truly inspiring little Community with an exemplarily religious life of prayer, of fidelity to the true Catholic Faith, with the love and esteem of the liturgical tradition of the Church, with a great love for the poor and especially a Catholic missionary zeal for the salvation of souls and the formation of authentic Catholic priests.

I recommend also various initiatives for supporting the Missionaries of the Holy Cross in Tanzania, e.g., the climbing of Mount Kilimanjaro and the pilgrimage to the Mission in Tanzania with the Confraternity of Our Lady of Fatima. This initiative will also be an effort to raise much-needed funds for the Mission and the priestly formation there.

May God bless all your noble endeavours and Christian charity!
